LibriVox recording of The Pretty Lady, by Arnold Bennett.
Read by Simon Evers.

‘The Pretty Lady’ is considered to be one of Bennett's most revealing and under-rated works. It is the story of a French prostitute, Christine, who has escaped from wartime Ostend, and set herself up in business in London. Though a refugee, she demands no pity; she is self-sufficient, practical and realistic. Christine is not a harpy preying on innocent soldiers, but a canny businesswoman, doing the best she can with the opportunities life has given her. Her main relationship is with G.J. Hoape, a wealthy man above the military age. Bennett in this novel presents a disturbing image of wartime society, fragmented, uneasy and divided. There are references to industrial unrest and to social injustices, and hints that the British press is less than frank about the war. (Summary by Simon Evers)

Wasn't aware of Arnold Bennett at all, even though he seems to be well known in the UK, and has an omelet name after him, a very high honor. The reader interprets very well. It takes a Brit to properly read a Brit. Well done!

Simon Ever's reading of this fascinating work is up to his usual A+ performance. The book itself is amazing. Think Arnold Bennett's work is way ahead of its time in terms of emotional honesty.
